THREE people have died and another was seriously injured in a spate of car accidents over the past 48 hours.

A man believed to be in his 30s died following a collision at Bass around 5.40am today (Thursday).

Investigators believe a Hyundai sedan attempted to turn right on to the Bass Highway from Hade Avenue, where it struck a 4WD travelling south on the Bass Highway.

The single occupant of the Hyundai, a man who is yet to be identified, died at the scene.
The two men in the 4WD sustained minor injuries and are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
The Bass Highway remains closed at Hade Avenue as police attend to the scene.

Meanwhile, two men killed on the Strzelecki Highway between Thorpdale and Mirboo North yesterday (Wednesday) are still yet to be identified.

Police believe the men’s utility burst into flames when it collided with a semi-trailer milk tanker yesterday afternoon.

Emergency service crews were called to the scene around 1.50pm and arrived to find the two vehicles on fire.

Miraculously, the driver of the milk tanker was uninjured.

And in an earlier incident, a 23-year-old Wonthaggi man was airlifted to hospital following an accident yesterday (Wednesday) morning.
